The new coach will decide the player's futures

Chiefs confirm they will bid farewell to Khune on their Twitter (X) page:

A Briefly News source said the yet-to-be-confirmed coach will decide the futures of the six players, while defender Ngcobo has reportedly spoken to PSL rivals AmaZulu FC.

The source said

"There are players whose contracts are expiring, and there are targets in the transfer market, but nothing can be confirmed until the new coach is hired; he will have the final say."

Amakhosi fans share their views

Chiefs supporters took to social media to share their views about who should stay at the Soweto club while they await the announcement of Cavin Johnson's replacement.

Mbhoni Erasmus says some players should be kept:

"Dove, Ngcobo, Sithebe and Matlou. We still need them in our team."

Zika Dlaminie prefers to keep Ngcobo:

"What a joke releasing Ngcobo instead of [Zitha] Kwinika."

Katlego Trey is confused:

"I don't understand Kaizer Chiefs releasing players before the new coach arrives. He'll be the one to choose his players. That's why it'll take Kaizer Chiefs years to be back."

"All are doing bad."
